The league said it was concerned for the safety of players and fans traveling to the games in Hershey. "America's Game," the annual Army-Navy football game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, will go on, and is expected to be stuffed with Cadets and Midshipmen standing, bouncing and cheering.

Travel could get complicated for those attending the annual Pennsylvania Society festivities in New York. That includes Gov. Tom Corbett, former Gov. Ed Rendell, U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and Attorney General Kathleen Kane.

Amtrak trains between Philadelphia and New York should be able to handle the snow, Amtrak spokesman Craig Shultz said. Some locomotives are outfitted with plow devices to help keep the tracks clear, and a plow train is available, as well, Schultz said.

Amtrak also has tree trimming crews on standby, and has lined up diesel-powered locomotives and backup trains and station crews, Shultz said.

The storm is expected to arrive Saturday morning, with strong winds and gusts of up to 30 mph. The early burst of wintry weather has been a boon for ski resorts such as Blue Mountain in Palmerton, which was expecting 8 inches of additional snow Saturday.
